Ready for larger role in New Delhi: Rahul

July 19, 2012 12:27 IST

Breaking his silence on the growing clamour in Congress, Rahul Gandhi on Thursday indicated he will play a proactive role and the decision on the timing will be taken by party president Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

He said a decision has been taken on playing a bigger role and that its timing depends on the leadership.

Rahul told television channel NDTV that the option of playing a bigger role in the party and in the government was open.

His comments come a day after Sonia had said that it was for Rahul to decide for himself on playing a larger role in the party.

"No one can take a decision on his behalf. He has to take a decision," she had said in Parliament House.

These comments come against the backdrop of pleas made by senior Congress leaders like Digvijay Singh and Salman Khurshid in this matter
